Parsons home, following a sickness of only a few days. She had not been feeling up to normal dn more than two weeks, but did not get down In bed till last week Tuesday. She suffered at first with a severe pain In one arm. The pain then went Into her chest and downward. The Immediate cause of death ,was Intestinal flU. , • L.

Hulse conducted services, and Mr. English again offered prayer. A quartet sang Mrs. Patterson's favorite hymn. Will There Be Any .Stars In My Crown? Paul Leaverton sang One Sweetly Solemn Thought. Bilrial was made at Irvlngton, where the Algona Eastern Mrs"! I Star lodge, of which Mrs. Patterson was the last charter member, had charge of the rites. Mrs. Patterson's maiden name was Mary C. Burtls, and she was born at Whitesville, in Potter county,.Pa., October 31, 1854. She came with her parents, John and Luclna Burtls. to Cedar Falls by train, and on to Kossuth by team In November, 1864. The first night here was spent In a log cabin on the present Allle Brown farm. This cabin was torn down 30 years ago. The family then moved to a house across the present railroad tracks, east of the John Riley home here. Miss Burtls was married to Henry Patterson April 5, l'S77, and they lived on his homestead in Rlverdale township, the farm now owned by her son, J. M. Patterson. After eleven years there the family moved to Algona, where they lived till Mr. Patterson's death in 1905, and Mrs. Patterson continued to live there till a few years ago, when she came to live with her daughter. Four children were born: Jewell M., "Pearl P., now Mrs. Parsons, Har- I old H., Algona, and Ina P., who died at 12. Mrs. Patterson joined the Methodist church at Algona in 188S. Besides the children, Mrs. Patterson left a brother, Bailey Burtis, Algona, now the last of his family. She also left nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

They were all at Harry's Friday, getting ready to thresh soybeans with a company-owned thresher which is kept there. Arthur 'Fuerstenau, farmer, a half mile west of Lotts Creek, Is a bachelor. He was telling us the other day how he used a pressure cooker, and we got the Idea -that he must be a good cook. When we kidded him about getting a real cook, he admitted' that he planned to have one sometime. (At the "town" of 'Stevens, north of Lakota, we recently vlelted a few minutes with L. B. Bosma, who mentioned the birth of a daughter, Doris Ann, September 16. Mrs. Bosma was Louise Maas before marriage. A September baby was born also to Mr. and Mrs. (Henry Heidecker, next west, a son, on September 19. H. H. Struecker, six miles north of Fenton, was picking corn, Friday, and three daughters were helping him. The girls were In school, but there was no school that day. The Strueckers have an excellent home, the house having been built of a pretty colored brick. The yard and outbuildings are kept up In fine shape. At J. W. Hartman's, on the south edge of Fenton, the men were picking corn last week Wednesday. J. W. said, however, that he could not pick as fast as he once did. In his Prime he could .pick. 125 bushels a day, and do it easy. But we thought he had done pretty well eo far that afternoon, for he had at least a 35- bu. load on his wagon. 'We stopped a -Ernest Weisbrod'e garage at Fenton last Thursday. He is always repairing cars, buzz saws,, or something. This fall he has split a large pile of wood for home use. This year we find a great many people filling basements with wood to save the price of coal. The Advance shop and the editors are burning a of knowing how. The Thompsons use nothing else. • * At Fenton the other day We called on O. J. Stephenson, who has an excellent store there and gets his. share of the trade, He was kept busy every minute We were there. Among other 1 things we learned that he had put a load of corn into his basement for fuel. Mr.Stephensont who tea brother of Mrs. Nels Mitchell, south of Algona, was brought up at Sturgeon Bay, on '.Lake Michigan, In northern Wisconsin, but-came to Iowa some 30 years ago and located at I<u Verne. He was elected district. court clerk to succeed W. C. Dewel and served two of three terms with an excellent record. Then he was, In business at Algona till he went to Fenton. The Stephensons are active Methodists and are popular at (Fenton. A farmer's'wife wli'o called on ue Monday morning said she had sold 31 head of chicken* averaging 4% pounds for less than $10.altogether. Even at that, we notice that Wallace's 'Farmer's market study _ Indicates poultry nearer to the 10-year average price than any farm crop, livestock, or produce, except-eggs (of which latter few are being marketed), and fat cattle'. Wallace'^ | Farmer gave fat hens last week as selling for 65 per cent of the 10-year average, and eggs or fat cattle as selling for 70 per cent of the 10-year average. If w;e quote these prices to a farmer, however, he saysc "The hens are not laying now, the lat hens have all been, sold, and—yee we have no fat cattle today!" . Mr. and Mrs. Geo. C. Olson, Sexton, are the farm couple who have had more than average interest in Algona schools. At one time they were sending four children to the Algona high school. Five of their children have been graduated there. Two of the girls, Mrs. (Leslie Huff and Mrs. Gilbert Benschoter, married elevator men. On learning this we inquired whether Mrs. Olson could not use her influence with the sone-in-law to get a little more than seven cents for corn. Mr. Huff is manager at Plum Creek, and Mr. Benschoter, now at Kanawha, got his start at the same elevator. Another daughter married nf cofft he ex« fatm* ' ' - ^.At ^.i. Cresco Mr. and MM. E. C.
